a hard day






Yesterday I posted Chief for sale.

It's been a very hard decision he's very much part of our family. But after much soul searching I've decided to start looking to see if I can find him a owner who can provide him the training and leadership I can not. It's hard to admit I can't do it all. It's hard to admit that I couldn't break though what ever he has going on. It's hard to let go of this big guy who I've put so much time into and totally love. I'm certainly not in a hurry and will only sell him to the perfect person/home. But I've taken the leap so we'll see what happens next. For now he's here just livin' and being chief at our place.

If You are kind of horsey you can find his ads up on the following sites...

Clare, strong thoughts sent your way to help you find the very best 'next step' for Chief. He is so beautiful, and he knows how much you love him - and he's lucky that you recognize he needs to be making those next steps. Hugs,
Lois

Hi Clare, there is an organization in your region that might be helpful: http://www.safehorses.org

They seem to have a pretty good reputation and do something called an "assisted adoption." If you're finding the sales process difficult it might be an alternative. Good luck!

I know how much he means to you and I am sorry this is so tough. I know that at some point the horse element of Big Table may be possible. You will be in my thoughts as the day for him to move comes. Why is it the toughest way through something is usually the right way. Miss you much...

THanks for sharing this Clare... i can't imagine how hard this is and how sad you must be...
you've certainly given him a great time at Big Table and he will always know that you love him!!
The right owner will come his way in the right time...
